Sporterized Mausers: Doing it Right

For most collectors the idea of sporterizing a military rifle is anathema. However, when surplus was abundant (and cheap), they were a perfect way to obtain a reliable design to convert into sporting rifle.

We’ve all seen the crude versions of these conversions and wished ill on whoever ruined such a perfectly good service rifle. However, there are also those sporterized rifles which have been done with care and attention, resulting in a superb sporting rifle that can be cherished for decades to come.

RIAC’s Matt Omerza shows us several examples of the latter which can be found in February Sporting & Collector Auction.
